Bus drivers union makes move for 21st century bussing

Dozens of public buses have now been equipped with free WiFi for passengers traveling across routes in New Providence.

The initiative, which has been paid for by the union representing bus drivers, came into effect on Sunday.

“We not looking at 10 years from here, we are not looking at 5 years from here, we need the system now,” said Bus Drivers Unions President Fredrick Farrington yesterday during an interview with Eyewitness News, as he expressed frustration about government promises to upgrade to the local public bus system.

A government funded pilot program, which was said to make public transportation easier and more effective, was announced months ago.
